Term Project Information:
Communication is a vital part of business, school and personal life. This semester you will be required to write one report that is 6-10 pages in length (not including a title page). Choose a topic of your liking. The topic can be regarding hardware, software or the Internet. Then, give a brief history of your topic, its current applications, and its projected future. You have flexibility in how many pages each of the sections should have, but the total may not exceed 10 pages. The information for the report should come from current issues of common computer books, periodicals or journals, magazines, news articles or online material dealing with computers. Please review the following requirements for the written report:
Weight: The project will correspond to 20% of your overall grade.
Due date: The project is due 430 PM on the same day/time as the final exam. By that time, both a paper copy should be turned in to the professor as well as an electronic copy should be placed on the Assignments section on Blackboard. If both copies are not turned in on that date, the project will not be considered turned in.
Due dates posted in the announcements or posted with the assignments in blackboard are for quick reference only. Assignment actual due date is defined with each assignment. In the absence of an explicit due date, the rule for online class is “the due date per the course schedule stands”.
Page limits: Your report must not exceed 10 pages excluding the title page. If it does, your grade will be based on the first ten pages.
Format: One-inch margins, double-spaced, on 8.5×11 inch paper, fonts no smaller than 10 points in Times New Roman font style. While gratuitous use of alternative fonts and formatting is not normally encouraged, this report should include a few different font sizes and styles (e.g., bold, italic in sub-section titles) to demonstrate the use of this functionality. Page numbers must appear on every page following the cover page (the first page after the cover page should be page number one). Staple the pages together. The cover pages must include a title, your name, the due date for the assignment, an email address where you can be contacted, and at least one relevant graphic or image.
References should be stated as footnotes on each corresponding page in a format similar to the following:
Jones, L and Smith, K. 1999. The Effect of After-Hours Game Play on Child Social Behavior. Behavior and Information Technology, Vol. 5, Issue 6, pp. 23-32.
Proofread your work: Please carefully proofread your work spelling, grammar, or typing errors prior to submission.
Giving appropriate credit: Be sure to give appropriate credit whenever citing or quoting existing work. Include appropriate references. If you have used references from an online source, you must also list them. For this report, source material should be cited as a footnote within the report. This means you need to integrate them into your project (as part of the 10 pages) as footnotes.
The main goal of this project is to allow the students to conduct research based on peer-reviewed literature. Peer-reviewed work is highly reliable as this kind of work is evaluated by experts in the area before being published. A lot of community-based sites such as Wikipedia and howstuffworks.com are not considered peer-reviewed as they are not as rigorously evaluated. Therefore, such non-peer-reviewed sites are not allowed to be used as references in the project.
Project Delivery: A electronic copy of the project must be turned in class on the due date. Additionally, a digital copy of the entire project also must be electronically put on the corresponding Assignment section on the Blackboard page from where some random projects will be sent to turnitin.com by the professor.
If both copies (one paper and one electronic) are not delivered on time, the project will be counted as not turned in. If both copies are not turned in by the due dates, there will be a 20-point penalty for missing the deadlines on each submission and additional 20 points for each following passing day.
Unfortunately, project drafts are not reviewed prior to the submission date. However, content questions regarding the project will be answered in detail throughout the semester at any time.
